Below is the list of the 10 most-viewed K-Pop artists on YouTube in 2023 so far:



Park Jae-sang, more popularly known as PSY and for his international hit song "Gangnam Style," is the only K-Pop artist on the list that doesn't belong to a group. The P Nation founder reportedly achieved 423 million YouTube views this year.



YG Entertainment's fourth-generation K-Pop boy group TREASURE joined Kworb's list with 436 million reported views on the video streaming platform. The now 10-member group released its second full album, "Reboot," on July 28.

Several track videos, behind-the-scenes vlogs, dance practice videos and the "BONA BONA" music video were released on YouTube as part of promotions.



LE SSERAFIM, currently on its first-ever tour, is the fifth most-viewed K-Pop girl group on YouTube this year and the eighth most-viewed K-Pop artist overall. It reportedly achieved 466 million YouTube views this year.



Cube Entertainment's artist (G)I-DLE is not only the seventh most-viewed K-Pop artist globally this year with 632 million views, but it is also the seventh most-followed K-Pop group on China's QQ Music with 1.6 million followers.

The girl group previously broke records with its song "Queencard." In June, the "Queencard" music video was named the fastest K-Pop group music video of 2023 to surpass 100 million views, per Soompi.

NewJeans, which recently released its second EP, "Get Up," is reportedly the third most-viewed K-Pop female artist on YouTube in 2023 globally and the fifth most-viewed K-Pop group overall with 747 million YouTube views.
For the group's second mini-album, NewJeans released music videos accompanying the tracks in "Get Up."



TWICE didn't only make history as the first K-Pop girl group to sell out the SoFi Stadium in California for its "Ready To Be" world tour, it's also reportedly the second most-viewed K-Pop girl group on YouTube in 2023 and the fourth most-viewed K-Pop artist overall with 975 million views on the online video streaming platform.


Stray Kids

Despite being in the K-Pop industry for just a little over five years, Stray Kids has been breaking records left and right. Just recently, the South Korean boy group formed by JYP Entertainment marked its biggest debut, third chart entry and third No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with "5-Star," after its 2022 releases, "Oddinary" and "Maxident."

It is the third most-viewed K-Pop group on YouTube this year and the second most-viewed K-Pop male artist with 978 million YouTube views.



BTS is the second most-viewed K-Pop artist on YouTube this year, with 2 billion views. Although J-Hope and Jin are currently completing their mandatory military service in South Korea, the remaining members – RM, Jimin, Jungkook and V — are pursuing solo activities.

After recently closing his "D-DAY" world tour, Suga announced on Aug. 7 that he already initiated his military enlistment process.



BLACKPINK reigns supreme as it topped the list of the most-viewed K-Pop artists globally this year, with a whopping 2.8 billion views on YouTube.

The four-member girl group, which consists of Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo and Rosé, is currently on the last leg of its successful, sold-out "Born Pink" world tour.
